Academy Award winner and four-time Tony nominee Estelle Parsons (Nice Work If You Can Get It) is heading back to Broadway this spring to star in Eric Coble's new play The Velocity of Autumn, which will open at the Booth Theatre on April 21.

Parsons and her Velocity costar, Tony Award winner Stephen Spinella (Angels in America), will participate with Coble in a discussion about the play at a March 19 event at the 92nd Street Y.

The Velocity of Autumn is a two-character dark comedy centered on Alexandra (Parsons), a 79-year-old artist who has locked herself in her Brooklyn brownstone and surrounded herself with Molotov cocktails after arguing with her family about where she'll spend her remaining years.

Molly Smith directs the production, which previously played at Washington, D.C.'s Arena Stage, where she serves as artistic director. The production will feature scenic design by Eugene Lee, costume design by Linda Cho, lighting design by Rui Rita, wig design by Paul Huntley, and sound design by Darron L. West.
